So baking sales -- are they still a hotbed of mommy politics? Do people still care whether you bring homemade or store-bought? Because I feel like this pretend conflict keeps popping up in movies and TV, but in real life, no one gives a shit. Take comedian Bill Maher, who goes out of his way to be annoying anyway, so whatever. But his "New Rule for Moms" is to stop baking cookies from scratch for those school bake sales.
Okay, first of all, who asked you, Bill? Secondly, why is this rule only for MOMS and not all parents? No, you know what? It's much simpler than that. I would like to invite Bill Maher to take a box of Costco cookies and shove it up his butt, because as far as I'm concerned, that is just something he can do. Quit stoking the mommy wars -- especially in such a lame, low-stakes way.
